Man City v Everton Tips: Citizens to win an entertaining Prem clash?
Manchester City’s title defence hit its first bump last weekend, as Pep Guardiola’s men sank to a 2-0 defeat at Chelsea.
They’re bidding to bounce back this weekend against Everton. But the Toffees have tended to prove stubborn opposition for City.
Will this be a comfortable home win, or can Marco Silva’s side give their hosts a real headache?
The Citizens have won all eight of their Premier League games at home so far, and are 2/9 for another victory.
However, Everton have drawn on three of their last four visits here. It’s 11/2 for honours-even, with the visitors 12/1 to head home with maximum points.
The Merseyside outfit have netted in 10 of their last 12 games, but are up against a powerhouse Citizens attack. We go 7/5 for City to Win and Both Teams to Score.
Silva’s side are strong starters, and haven’t trailed at the break in any of their last seven games. It’s 9/5 for level-pegging at half-time here.
City are firmly a 4-3-3 side. Leroy Sane and Raheem Sterling are likely to be the wide men in that front three. Sergio Aguero remains an injury doubt, so it’s between him and Gabriel Jesus to start as the central striker.
Defensively, the impressive pairing of Aymeric Laporte and Nicolas Otamendi will be doing their level best to keep out a decent Toffees frontline.
Everton are a 4-2-3-1 outfit under Silva. The midfield steel will likely come from Idrissa Gueye and Andre Gomes in that holding duo. Further forward, Richarlison offers their best chance of a goal.
Despite currently carrying a knock, Aguero still leads the Anytime Goalscorer market. We go 6/10 he adds to his current tally of 12 this term.
Leroy Sane has been superb of late, with seven goals in eight outings for club and country – including two braces. He’s 11/10 to get on the scoresheet, and 7/2 to bag Two or More Goals.
As for Richarlison, he’s 3/1 to find the net for the third game on the spin.
